Octobre 1965, New York. Les traditionnels géants des Fêtes de Pampelune sont invités à défiler sur la 5ème avenue. Mais les autorités américaines interdisent la participation des deux géants noirs dans le contexte de la ségrégation raciale. C’en est trop pour Manex qui, fidèle à ses convictions et son tempérament rebelle, fausse compagnie à ses collègues. Il part à la découverte du New York de la lutte pour les droits civiques et de la contre-culture. Il est alors loin de s’imaginer que c’est le début pour lui d’un périple loin de son Pays Basque natal, entre Cuba et Mexico, en passant par Alger et Montréal. Il y croisera des militants de tous bords, des agents de la CIA, des femmes passionnées et révolutionnaires… Entre voyage initiatique et odyssée libertaire, Manex traverse le monde en ébullition de cette fin des années 60, celui de la Guerre Froide et des mouvements de libération des peuples.

Kaulder (Vin Diesel) is a witch-hunter who was cursed with eternal life in the Middle Ages by the Witch Queen (Julie Engelbrecht). The Witch Queen was planning to unleash a deadly plague to wipe out humanity but Kaulder was able to defeat her. Prior to seemingly dying the Witch Queen cursed him with eternal life as punishment. 800 years later, Kaulder is still working as a witch hunter for an organization which aims to keep the truce between humans and witches. Ever since he was made immortal by the Witch Queen, Kaulder is accompanied by a priest called a "Dolan" whose main purpose is to record the achievements of Kaulder and to be his keeper. The 36th Dolan (Michael Caine) is retiring from his duties and has chosen a new Dolan to work alongside Kaulder. However, the very same night he dies in his sleep. While investigating his apartment, Kaulder and the 37th Dolan (Elijah Wood) discover traces of magic and deduce that the 36th Dolan was murdered by a witch. While tracking down the witch responsible, Kaulder finds traces of old dark magic, last seen before he killed the Witch Queen. Using clues the 36th Dolan left behind, Kaulder goes to a witch bar owned by Chloe (Rose Leslie) to buy a memory spell to "Remember his death". While in the process of reliving his memory, the bar is attacked by Balkazar Kotela, better known as Belial (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson), the witch that killed the 36th Dolan. After attacking Kaulder he proceeds to burn down the place, and attack Chloe at her apartment later in the evening, though Kaulder saves her. After Chloe's friend is killed by Belial, she agrees to help Kaulder get what he needs to kill him.

In a confessional, a parishioner talks to Father James about his horrific childhood sexual abuse by a priest. He says he will kill James at the beach the next Sunday, because James is a good man and it would be worse and more disconcerting for the Catholic Church than killing a bad priest; in any case, the offender has already died.
